Deciding to Buy New Construction

Deciding to Buy New Construction

When you are house hunting, there are so many options out there for you to consider.  Do you want to buy or rent?  Do you want a home where you share walls with others or do you want something that is free standing?  Do you want certain features in your home or are you not picky as to what you want?  Of course, then there are considerations such as square footage, the amount of bedrooms and a variety of other things. 

Chances are, no matter where you live, there is likely new construction that is going on that you can get into.  The best thing about new construction is that you are able to pick what you do and do not want in regards to appliances, features and colors.  But one of the downsides is that depending on what stage construction is in, you may have to wait a while before you are able to get into your home.  And if you are not a person who likes making decisions, you may find that you have to make a lot more decisions that you want to from paint colors, style of carpet or even the handles on the cupboards.

Another thing to consider though before deciding that new construction is the way for you to go is the cost.  If you figure out the cost per square, you may find that even though a new house seems more expensive, an existing home plus renovations to make it ideal will actually cost more than the new one.
